Having to take the nebulizer everywhere and knowing that I have to make sure places have a place to plug it in. I also wonder if he'll 'outgrow' it.

Since A.J has had breathing problems since 4 months old, the hardest part for me was A.J not being able to communicate with me.. It was a guessing game and I basically had to learn his symptoms as we went..

This and the not knowing when it will get set off. Danny has year round problems. Spring...pollen, mold, cold, etc. Summer, heat. Fall, mold, cold. Winter, mold, cold. Sometimes he is okay when it is 92 degrees outside, sometimes he isn't. Sometimes he is okay to walk to the car when it is 95 outside as long as the car is cooled off already and sometimes he isn't...

Yeah. I have this problem too. And making sure it's an Asthma flair up and not coughing from a cold/and or croup. I totally messed up Monday. I really thought we were dealing with Croup again.

Instead it was a bad asthma attack.

Ours are one in the same. Even a sinus infection sets off his asthma...If he has any sort of respiratory bug it also irritates his asthma severely. The worse the bug the worse the asthma related effects...

Just wondering if your nebulizer has an adapter for your car so you can plug it into a power source.. The one we have is a portable nebulizer which has different options for a source of power other then an outlet..

We had one that was optional between battery power, car adapter and wall plug but the part where the headphone type plug was for the adapters to attach broke so now we just have the wall neb again. That one was a gift from a friend and had already gone through 3-4 families before it got to us though. He has a rescue inhaler to use when we are out and we are to use the neb anytime we are at home or somewhere for a long period of time. We also use the neb 100% when he is sick because he has to have treatments every 2-3 hours to keep his breathing where it needs to be.

It was this one...
